Key Features

Freehold with vacant possession
In need of refurbishment
Town centre location
Mixed use investment property


An end-terrace Grade II listed mixed-use property on the eastern side of Ipswich town centre, which is in need of updating and improvement, but offers an attractive investment opportunity. The deceptively spacious end-terrace property is understood to date from the 17th century and is of part timber frame and part brick construction, beneath a predominantly pitched tiled roof, with a single storey extension to the rear under a single pitched corrugated sheet roof. The property fronts the busy arterial route of St Helen's Street, with the accommodation comprising: Ground floor: Retail Area (3.43m x 8.56m) with display window, concrete floor, stairs to first floor, Kitchenette Area with MDF base units and stainless steel sink; Rear Store Room (8.9m x 2.7m) with fitted carpet, radiator and fire door to side passage; Cloak Room with white WC and sink; Shower Room with tiled shower cubicle. First floor: A small Landing gives access to Front Room (4.7m x 2.96m) with fitted carpet, single glazed window to front and blocked fireplace; Rear Room (3.5m x 3.5m) with fitted carpet and single glazed window to rear. The gross internal floor area of the property is approximately 94.93m² (1,021ft²). The property is in need of some refurbishment, with the rear store area in particular requiring upgrading, but the property presents a good opportunity for an investor buyer or owner occupier alike.


Freehold with vacant possession


104 St Helen's Street lies approximately 300m to the east of Carr Street, which is the main retail centre of Ipswich, while it is also approximately 75m from Suffolk New College and University of Suffolk buildings to the south. The location therefore has high levels of passing traffic. The county town of Ipswich boasts a wide range of shops, facilities and services, whilst also being host to the University of Suffolk campus and recently rejuvenated and redeveloped Neptune Marina, which is just a few hundred metres to the south of the property.
